Lenovo has opened its first in-house manufacturing facility in Europe — based in Ullo, Hungary. The factory focuses primarily on building server infrastructure, storage systems and high-end PC workstations used by customers throughout the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region.
The site employs over 1,000 full-time staff in a variety of engineering, management and operational roles. Lenovo will be looking for hiring at the new manufacturing units. Lenovo did not reveal its investment plans in Hungary.
The production line can produce more than 1,000 servers and 4,000 workstations a day – each one built specifically to customer requirements, China-based Lenovo said in a news statement.
Lenovo is using automation capabilities, including a building management system operating on the shop floor and logistics area to monitor temperature, humidity, asset conditions and DIMM robotic labeling. This enables Lenovo to maintain optimal quality control of its networking products.
The Hungary facility is part of Lenovo’s global manufacturing and supply chain strategy that serves customers in 180 markets from 35+ manufacturing sites around the world – including Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Mexico and the USA.
